A few thoughts from Pete Carroll

USC coach Pete Carroll also had a few interesting thoughts on the Huskies and Saturday’s game. Some highlights:
— He reiterated his comment that Jake Locker was the best QB USC has played in his nine years there and said that what he saw Saturday only “reinforced” that thought. “What you saw of him was when the game was on the line, he figured out a way to win, which is how I pictured him. I haven’t just said that since ou game but since he came into our conference years ago. He’s such a fantastic athlete and such a great competitor and has such great tools.”
— He also reiterated that he thinks UW would have done much better last year had Locker not gotten hurt. “When they didn’t have him, the program sunk and with him they can win and that’s where they are right now and they’ve got a chance to be a really good team. … Last year when he wasn’t there they lost all those games. It was a lot to put on the guy but he if he was there they would have won games.”
— Asked about the loss, he said “I would never want to take anything away from the people that we play when they beat us — when they get us, they get us and it was a fine job by them. We did turn the ball over three times inside the 30 and that was the story of the game for us. Whenever we have been beaten, that’s how the scenario has been, it’s been a game where we have turned the ball over a lot. When we don’t turn the ball over, we always win. They did what they needed to do — they took care of the football and we didn’t and they made the plays and much credit needs to go to them.”
— Asked about the performance of Aaron Corp, he said “he struggled with anything that went down the field and we were very fortunate that he didn’t throw three, four more picks. Three more picks were available to those guys that he got away with. He played hard, he worked at it, but getting the ball to receivers, we had some problems. That was as minimal a passing game we have had in as long as I can remember. We needed to help him make more plays and we just couldn’t catch and throw it the way we would like to.”
